FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where is your studio located?
I am located at 18 E Main St. Suite B in the historical district of Downtown Belleville, IL, just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. My loft studio is located above the Olive Oil Marketplace and there is plenty of street parking available.
What type of photography do you specialize in?
I specialize in Newborns, Baby's and Maternity portraits and have specific training in these areas. The safety of your precious baby is my first priority. I have invested hundreds of hours in newborn safety, posing education, and training from the world's top photographers in this field. Your baby will be cared for very gently and never put in a position where they are uncomfortable. Additionally, I am completely up to date on my immunizations and will reschedule your session if I am sick, as I do not want to expose them to anything.
I also enjoy family, high school seniors, weddings and other types of sessions.
When should I book my newborn session?
As soon as possible, I typically book 2-3 Months out. Expecting moms, please contact me in your second trimester for maternity sessions. Newborn sessions are best between 5-14 days old; however, if your baby is already born, there are sometimes last minute openings so please contact me regardless! =)
When can I expect my proofs?
About 2 days after your session, you'll receive your proof gallery to choose your favorite images to keep.
Do you offer custom sessions with prints and products?
Sessions are all inclusive with a Digital Collection plus prints/products (depending on package). I think it is so important to get these beautiful memories off your computer and onto your wall! How many times have you been left with a CD to figure out what to print, only to never print them or wait 6 months to a year after your session to get around to printing then? Guilty!
Part of the professional photography experience is for me to help you not only to create beautiful images but to assist in designing ways to display these images. I stand behind my products 100 %. Your images are carefully sized in the design process to fit the products you order, to produce the best quality possible. I ensure that my images are exported properly for not only the prints and products ordered through me, but the digital images you may purchase as well.
I take the guess work out of it and offer a premier service to help preserve these memories. I want to provide the best service possible in addition to high quality imagery, so you can cherish them for years to come!
What form of payment do you take?
I accept credit/debit cards, cash, and checks.
If you are interested in experiencing a custom session, I would be honored to work with you!
